The Dras^on Tale* The exact origin of the dragon remains somewhat obscure, but those who can recall that era at Lycoming say it was painted by a group of students in the 194 " ' -18 Frill and Frown dramatic club. It was inspired, so we hear, by the acquisition (and this is still a mystery) of some hand-carved Chinese furni- ture which was used to decorate the drama clubroom-lounge just down the hall from the Dragon Room. Consisting of a love-seat and two arm-chairs, this oriental suite subse- quently appeared in various campus spots and uses — as stage property, as a May Da\- throne, as scavengered seating for the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house, as junk in the theatre shop and most recently as stage prop- erty once more. Last year technical director Mike Welch unearthed si.x pieces of one of the chairs, wired it together, had it painted, and used it as the queen ' s throne in the I ' XiS production of Under the Sycamore Tree. Our dragon fared better. Each year the maintenance crew has touched up the paint so that today its green-black scales and flaming nostrils are still a striking sight. So striking, in fact, that freshmen, short on Lyco tradition but long on curiosity, upon hearing rumors of the esteemed serpent line up each fall outside the windows of Bradley to peer at him.

For a time it and two adjacent smaller rooms served as campus radio broadcasting studios. Its small stage has made it very favorable for speech students performing orally, for rehearsals, and for inti- mate drama staging. Currently it is the scene of the Thursday Theatre, a weekly four p.m. theatre forum open to students and faculty who present original works, experiment with avant-garde plays, or learn from the spontane- ity of improvisations. Through its continued and varied use, the Dragon Room has thus become a familiar, though puzzling, part of the daily scene. But to many Lycoming stu- dents it has always been the symbol for that rather esoteric undergraduate experience — campus theatre. By scanning we see that for a number of years theatre at Lycoming College was wholly extracurricular, sporadically good, and always a ball for the ■participants. It was in the form 12
